The seaside resorts of Weston-super-Mare, Burnham-on-Sea, Brean, Berrow, Sand Bay and Clevedon are all within a twenty-minute car ride of Netherdale. Cheddar, famous for its Gorge, caves, strawberries and cheese is less than four miles away. There are more caves and attractions at Wookey Hole, near the beautiful cathedral city of Wells. Across the peat moors are the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey and the famous Tor, a little further south is the site of the Battle of Sedgemoor. Clarks Village at Street offers excellent boutique shopping and whilst picking up a very reasonably priced pair or two of their current shoes from the factory outlet you can also investigate the history of shoe making in this town by visiting the Shoe Museum.
The Cresents, Abbey and Baths of the Georgian spa town of Bath are a pleasant drive away along the edge of the Mendips, past the lakes of Chew and Blagdon. These and the resevoir at nearby Axbridge provide sport for keen fishermen. Sailing and windsurfing also take place there. The ancient port of Bristol has much to offer the visitor, not least the S.S. Great Britain and the clifton suspension bridge - both renowned engineering feats of Isambard Kingdon Brunel.
If you are feeling energetic there are many hours of walking, jogging or cycling available, direct from the park and over the Mendip Hills.
